Stacey we have not got that far yet. My brother lives in Nairn, Inverness so we are going to travel up the west coast of Scotland and camp somewhere for a week. We are then going to meet my brother and sil and camp for 4 days and then stay at their house for a few days.

We loved camping when we used to go, before Oscar. And my brother gave me a new tent 4 +2 birth, its huge :shock: :hohoho: so we will definetly have plenty of room. Think my next step should be booking the site :D

I've just come back from a few days at a hotel & trust me you'll be surprised by how many nappies you actually have. Could you handwash the nappies?

Just realised you're only camping for 4 days. Would your nappies stretch that far & just bring a really big wetbag for them?

Pretty much all camping sites have laundry facilities. Just check when you are booking. :D

Most sites will have a laundry area - maybe you could pick a site based on that being a criteria.

I would be concerned about drying times if the weather is bad.

TBH, I wouldn't consider it much of a holiday for me if I was going out of my way to wash and dry nappies. If it wasn't as simple as using a machine in my accomodation I would take disposables. Its different if you have use of a private machine but you may have to wait for a slot, ensure you are about to empty the machine etc :-?

Another thing I would worry about is the smell if it was nice weather, tents get VERY warm in hot sunshine (although that'd be a plus for drying them :wink: )

:wine: for a holiday though. :D

I'm off in the campervan for 3 weeks in summer and have to admit that we will be using disposables. I'm very attached to my cloth, but carrying buckets of dirty nappies round in a hot van is a bit beyond even my love! :wink:
